It also makes it much easier to do bot blocking when you deploy server-wide solutions vs. going account to account.
This discussion has sent me to look into reseller hosting, both for my own and for domains I manage. Exactly because it allows for more centralized controls. Many clients are small, personal (non commercial, non monetized) domains that can't seem to bother with details very well. There isn't a large amount of money at stake so I don't see a lot of viable options. I am too old to keep running after the same problems in dozens of different places. I figure it has to be better than this.
